When the Currans first burst onto the downtown bar/restaurant scene in November, 1997, with the opening of the James Joyce Irish Pub on 8th Avenue, they were something of a cause celebre in Cowtown. Named after one of Ireland's most celebrated authors, the James Joyce was no ordinary Irish-styled pub. <br />Located in the old Molson's (TD) bank building, the Currans, who emigrated to Canada from Newry, Co. Down, in 1979, poured all kinds of Irish artifacts, features, fixtures, traditions, as well as their hearts and souls, into making the Joyce distinctive, as well as distinguished. <br />Ornate stained glass, hand-crafted tiles and mirrors, and elaborate light fixtures, complement the rich mahogany Victorian bar and authentic tin roof. Separate rooms, seating from 10 to 50 people, an Irish menu, Irish music, Irish festivals and Irish displays, and of course Irish drinks (Guinness and whiskeys) all add to the Irish ambiance. To no one's surprise, the James Joyce, quickly gained (and continues to enjoy) a reputation as one of the best places to spend an evening eating, drinking and socializing.
